Sorry for the lack of posting. I got back from my all to brief vacation and have just been keeping busy with work, work and more work. While on vacation though, I was abducted by vampires.
Just before we left for New York, I purchased the first two Twilight novels. A co-worker read them and loved them and one of the children’s parents in my class raved about them so I thought I would give them a try. Plus, I had a Barnes and Noble gift card burning a hole in my wallet. I’m a Harry Potter fan at heart and didn’t think I’d like the series. But oh.my.goodness. I am hooked.
To be fair, I wasn’t crazy about the first book. Bella (the main character) seemed needy and immature but then again, she was 17. I guess I’m a little out of touch with the whole teenage crowd. Well, the books grew on me. I finished the first one before we left and most of the second one on the way up. After finishing the second one I went to the local bookstore (my favorite bookstore, With Pipe and Book. They sell used books and pipe tobacco. I LOVE the smell in there) but I think they must be retiring soon because they were closed so I had to go next door and buy the next book new. I thought it would last me the rest of the vacation but I finished it the next day and had to trek back out (a 25 minute drive each way) to get the fourth and final book. I finished that one after we got back.
So, that’s four books in the span of one week. I also watched the movie and I have a new crush on Robert Pattinson. He is YUMMY. He can bite me any time he wants. :o) Can’t wait to see the next movie that comes out in November. And with Harry Potter coming out in July I am just way too excited about books and movies that were geared toward children and teenagers. Oh well. Everyone has guilty pleasures.
